Holy Paladin - Selfless healer over all?

2 posts in this topic

Hello my holy friends,

I really do have a problem with accepting the opinion that EF is the best choice in the T3 talents, as all the top holy paladins do. I mean most holy's are playing with around ~14k spirit, eternal flame and mostly prioritize intellect. I, for myself, tested this playstyle in SoO normal (10m) and flexible (25m) and I don't think this is performing that well.

I am playing with SH, 8,5k spirit and maximize mastery.

I use to heal with some other holy paladins in ToT hero since 5.4 just to test both styles in comparison. For example Megaera hero. At the end of the fight the other holy, just forgot his name, sorry, pulled around 120k with a 561 weapon (don't think he was bad at all) and I was at 160k (543 weapon). (Nearly same overall ilvl) (Don't have a log at all :/ )

The intention of this post, however, wasn't to say "Hey guys look at me" or "Lol, everbody's an idiot", but I really don't get it why everybody's still playing with EF.

I mean if you only look at the combination of Holy Avenger and SH...

Judgment - 3 HP heal - Holy Radiance (+60%, without cost, cause we stacked Judgment before) - 3 HP heal - Holy Shock (+60% Daybreak) and so on...

And all the haste we get from forging spirit away, for a lower HS and Judgment cooldown.

Actually I haven't had the option of healing SoO hero for now, but I'm 100% sure that my spirit pool is enough.

EF's hot just seems to go into overheal often enough in so many encounters and the healing stream to the beacon tank, how it's preached in so many guides, doesn't seem to be necessary.

Feel free and give me some of your opinions.

      Who we are
      <Hollow> is a semi-hardcore guild created by a group of friends, experienced players, that raided HC together in WOTLK. We reunited and transfered to the same realm to create a guild, or more accurately, a home. We keep a very friendly environment in and out of raids, oftenly joining discord to chat even if we aren't doing anything. Guild activities include but are not limited to mythic dungeons, mythic + and raiding.
      Our goals
      Our current progress is 7/7HC and 3/3N. Our goal is to form a better composed raid team and down ToV HC. During which we want to get everyone experienced and geared for mythics and next content. Mythic raiding is also in our plans once we get the right group for it.
      What we are looking for
      We are currently planning to expand and size up our raid team to progress ToV HC and in the not too distant future, Mythic raiding. We are strongly prioritizing priests of any spec, and healers are highly considered in general.
      RDPS: Most wanted all (Spriest); MDPS: Also welcome; HEAL: Need one or two (dont have monk, Dpriest); TANK: Main tank spots filled, still we could use one extra with DPS spec. Less geared people are also welcomed. 
      We also welcome social players as it can help our guild expand even further in other aspects of the game.
      Our raiding schedule
      Our current raiding schedule is 3 raids a week for 3 hours:
      Wednesday 8pm to 11pm server time - ToV Heroic Sunday 8pm to 11pm server time - EN Heroic Tuesday 8pm server time - ToV Normal & EN Normal The guild is using DKP system
      NOTE: We have added a catch up system for new recruits. When you get past the trial phase and join the ranks as an official member of our guild, you also earn 200 dkp as bonus. If thats not enough we will consider more options. We wont leave anyone behind no matter how new while at the same time, drawing a line for our core, active raiders.
      Thank you for taking your time reading through this post. If you have any further questions or if you are interested in joining us, feel free to contact us in game on Solidz, Hotbez or add us on BNET at Solidus#2642, bez#21193.
